Spirometry Test

An Important Update

Due to the pandemic, we now book patient appointments for Asthma Education by phone and Zoom. We offer limited in-person appointments for education and spirometry testing based on our phone sessions, patient need and the changing restrictions within the Alberta Health Services Calgary Zone.
